I have been travelling to the Gambia for a number of years now and the airport has declined in over the years. The airport used to be a very friendly place to travel through but now major problems with long queues at check in especially. What makes matters worse is they now charge you £18 for the privilege of it all when you leave the country and there were a lot of unhappy passengers on my last visit. It can take between 1-2 hours just to pay the money check in and go through security in utter chaos. The trouble is some of the flights are now to close together and this is a contributing factor.
